How to Buy Long in Inverse Futures Contracts

How to gain profits through opening buy-long positions when the price goes up?

Suppose that you have 1 BTC and buy/long 10 BTC using 10X leverage in BTCUSD trading market. When the price of BTC rises from 15,000 USD to 16,000 USD, your PNL is calculated as follows:

10 * ( 16,000 - 15,000 ) = 10,000 USDT

If you use 1 BTC for spot trading, you can only make a profit of 1,000 USDT. However, when you make 10X leverage through futures trading, your profit will be increased by 10 times.

Position Amount Opening Price Closing Price PNL
10 BTC 15,000 USD 16,000 USD

The amount of BTC equivalent to 10,000 USD

Note: To simplify the calculation of the above process, the calculation of premium, margin profit and loss, transaction fees and capital fees are ignored.

Risk Reminder
Futures Contract Trading not only allows you to magnify gains with fewer funds, but can also saddle you with amplified losses, when the market moves against your prediction. Therefore, we strongly advise entry-level users NOT to use high-leveraged trading to avoid forced liquidation or even bankruptcy.
